Designation of Origin: Deutscher Landwein Main Vintage: 2022 Grape(s): 100% Silvaner Vinification: Silvaner has a high pectin content, so it had a good soak for an average of three days (depending on the pick) before pressing, in order to soften the skins and get the best out of the pressing process. Aging: In used 500L barrels for 11 months + five months in the bottle before release Bottled: 25th of August 2023 Soil type: We have many plots of Silvaner mixed in here. Some are in the flat vineyards planted in gipskeuper, some are on the hillside where the soil has a higher proportion of schilfsandstein. Age of vines: The vines were planted between 1996 and 2003. Sulfur: All of our wines had a microdose of sulfur pre-bottling, and analyses came back under 20mg total. A note about the name: A line from the the excellent song “O You with Flowers”, sung by the Canadian band Royal City.

We fell in love during the hot harvest of 2018 in Burgenland, and soon germinated the idea to start our own small wine project. Both of us were cooking professionally as a first career, which we eventually ditched to go into wine full time. Emily was the Wine Director of Restaurant Candide in Montreal from 2016 up to summer 2023, working remotely from her home in Europe. She is also a week-end wine writer, her work is occasionally published in magazines and web platforms in English and French. Christoph has studied Oenology and Viticulture in Neustadt (Germany), where he learned a lot of important school stuff. He worked for Clemens Busch during his studies, before moving to Austria to be part of the team at Weninger, where he spent four harvests. Our first vintage was made in Austria in 2019. During the winter of 2021, we relocated to Germany, in the beautiful region of Franken. We now collaboratively farm 4 hectares with Linda & Erhard Haßold who have welcomed us on their Weinhof am Nussbaum. They have been farming organic for more than 30 years, always striving to find better solutions respectful of the plant and the environment. We share the work outside in the vines, and the harvest when the time comes. We also devote a portion of our time farming vegetables and fruits, which end up in our vast array of preserves, tucked in our basement for the winter months or sold on the shelves of a few stores, notably Café Vue in Würzburg. We encourage you to try our wines over a large variety of moods. We hope you like drinking them as much as we enjoyed making them. Christoph & Emily
